At Midcoast Vets we know how important it is to get a correct diagnosis for your pet. You can't treat an issue properly if you don't know what the problem is. 

Some conditions can be very tricky to diagnose and require high quality, specific equipment.  For this reason, we have purposefully invested in a full range of advanced and high quality diagnostic equipment.

On top of a range of standard instruments this includes;

  • state-of-the-art Digital DR x-ray systems
  • Specific Dental x-ray systems
  • Some of the most capable ultrasound machines available in veterinary medicine for abdominal and cardiac use
  • Top of the line endoscopy equipment with a specific nasal scope, a specific airway/lung scope and a scope for general use such as looking at the inside of a stomach.
  • A wide range of laboratory test machines for standard blood tests as well as clotting profiles, Progesterone, Cortisone and Lactate
  • An automated microscope which uses new technology to examine and interpret multiple types of samples and produces specialist pathologist opinions within a couple of hours
  • Continuous blood glucose monitoring systems that can be attached to your pet for up to 2 weeks enabling your diabetic pet to be monitored 24 hours a day in the comfort of your home instead of coming into the Vet Clinic for day stays and multiple blood collections
  • A CT machine - Yes, our Macksville clinic will have its own veterinary specific CT machine in early 2023!.  We are very excited about this and all the amazing things it will allow us to do for your pets. Stay tuned for the latest updates on this exciting machine!
